Effective equations in Mathematical Physics

30 June - 04 July 2014

The analysis of large quantum systems is a notoriously difficult problem, steming from the fact that quantum mechanics is formulated on a Hilbert space which grows with the number of particles. In some situations, however, simple effective models posed on a fixed space arise in the limit. These are usually nonlinear.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together mathematicians and mathematical physicists working either on the derivation of these effective theories, or on their analytical properties. Discussions will be encouraged in order to foster new collaborations and results.
